The late Prof. H.Subba Rao of Mysore University was a Sanketi
SmArta brahmin. After engaging in a debate with the erudite
late HH SatyadhyAna TIrtha of UttarAdi MaTha for a month,
Prof. Subba Rao finally converted to the MAdhva SampradAya.
According to him, his people, i.e. the Sanketis originally came
from Shenkotta in South Kerala, hence the name Sanketi. Prof.
H.Subba Rao eventually became one of the leading paNDits of
our community. He passed his last days in the service of HH
LakShmIvara TIrtha of the ShirUr MaTha of UDupi. His only
English book "Strength of Madhvaism" was published by the
pontiff of the ShirUr MaTha.
